Before you start your project, remember to take “before” photos of your project area. You will need to take “after” images once your project is completed. Before/after photos of your project are needed for you to be reimbursed.
When buying plants, review the list of reimbursable vegetation and expenses, and don’t forget to save your receipts! Note that cultivars are not reimbursed. To learn the difference between natives and cultivars, see the How to Plant for Pollinators page. This list of native plant nurseries may be helpful. You can also check out the state Department of Natural Resources, this Wild Ones list of native nurseries or the Blue Thumb Partner Finder.
When your project is complete, submit your photos, receipts, and other documentation on the reimbursement page. Please take your time filling it out. Missing information or mistakes can lead to delays in receiving your reimbursement and your Lawns to Legumes garden sign.
